Water supply under pressure in areas of Fingal due to increased demand
Customers in Skerries, Rush and Lusk are particularly asked to conserve water
Irish Water is advising customers in Fingal that due to the extremely cold weather conditions and exceptionally high water demand, some water treatment plants in the county are struggling to keep up with supply demands.
Customers are being asked to conserve water to avoid reservoirs emptying and water pressure to homes and businesses being affected.
Customers in Skerries, Rush and Lusk continue to conserve water as storage reservoir levels are at critically low levels.
Customers throughout Fingal are urged to conserve water by not running taps unnecessarily, taking showers instead of baths and to refrain from using dishwashers and washing machines.
Irish Water working in partnership with Fingal County Council thanks customers for their patience while we work to resolve all issues due to the extremely cold weather conditions and would like to apologise to customers for any inconvenience caused. We wish to reassure customers that work and repairs are ongoing and are being completed as soon as it is safe to do so.
